This six part documentary series aims to get to the root of our prickly relationship with body hair. Produced by A Grain Of Rice Productions and directed by Michelle Ang, Hair Now follows six women from different cultural backgrounds across Aotearoa examining how their hair shapes their identity.
Beauty therapist Jessica shapes her eyebrows to fit her mood; Kenzi is getting more comfortable with her unshaved legs; Roxie navigates the worlds of film and fashion as she grows out her monobrow; Yasmine accepts a gift of laser therapy; Serena goes to a hairdresser who can manage curls; and Genevieve visits a barber to get her undercut just like she likes it.
Yasmine's episode is up first and available now on The Spinoff. Click here to watch
